Sign at the entrance to the park. I have been to this park so many times and can’t believe this is the first time I took a photo of it.

    • Thanks Jayde! The third picture is kind of funny because of what happened afterwards. The Grackle came in hard and landed on the mossy rock and almost slid off. It had a hard time getting a grip on the slime. I was too busy laughing instead of photographing it.

  1. great photos as always…Grackle coloring is awesome, the iridescent affect makes it interesting instead of boring! isn’t it funny how the crabs often seem as though they have expressions on their faces…I’ve seen it many times before! love the UFO over the beach…I’m sure you’ve guessed,I’m fascinated with clouds! 🙂

    • Thanks Heather! The iridescent colors are very attractive. The poor crab definitely looked in pain and I couldn’t imagine having my limbs ripped off one by one. Your cloud photos are beautiful. Looking forward to seeing more of yours.
